Give the gift of maple cinnamon spiced nuts this holiday season! I can think of a million reasons why you should have these at your next dinner party or why you should gift them to friends, but the most important reason is because they’re absolutely the most delightful holiday treat that smell phenomenal.
One of my favorite things about holiday time is the scent. You know, that nostalgic smell that brings you back to childhood or brings you back to a certain time. I feel like the holidays have so much SMELL. Cinnamon, pine, snow, firewood, peppermint; there’s just so much! It’s interesting how a specific scent can evoke so much emotion. Just like hearing that song on the radio that you haven’t heard in years; but as soon as you hear it, it brings you right back and you remember the exact time and moment and you can swear you’re there.
